Base site selection

Finding the right spot can be difficult at times. Especially if there is not a great spot on the property you are working on.

That ridge your on looks to be an awesome place for the base setup.

Another thing, is I typically, bury a log home spike, 2-4" deep, under the base. I can stake these with the LS, later, and that gets me within a few feet. Another habit I have, is to set a new xtra base site, for my use, on each visit to the job. It works.
The cooler is mine... My radio wires go in it. The other box is a hard box for the LS, and t2.

Yes, it's a type of cactus. It makes red cactus apples. It grows well, in rocky soil, that drains well.
I shoulda got a pic of it.

I bet you get unbelievable base radio coverage up there. What is the purpose of the blue sections on your rover pole? Seems like a lot of extra connectors and/or adapters above the basic pole top.

How tight is that quick release? I've been using the Leica-style and fine that it has more play than I'd like. It's probably less than a millimeter, but annoying nonetheless.
